Christopher Meloni Returning As Elliot Stabler For 'Law & Order: SVU' Spin-Off

Alicia D'Aversa 31 Mar 2020

Law & Order: SVU is currently on its 21st season, which, needless to say, means that it's doing very well.

In fact, it's doing so well, that the show - and one very special character - are getting a spin-off!

Elliot Stabler will be returning!

The show, currently, will consist of 13 episodes. It will be a drama series that will follow Stabler as he leads an NYPD crime unit.


So we can definitely be counting on tons of action and drama to keep us interested.

Last we saw of Stabler, he had retired, so it will be interesting to see what makes him return to the force!


The show really hasn't been the same without him!

Since leaving the show, Christopher has been keeping himself pretty busy.

As expected, fans are completely freaking out about the news.

And of course, are already hoping for that sweet sweet reunion with Olivia.

And if a reunion doesn't happen... well...

There's a very good chance that fans may never recover. That's all I'll say about that.
